Walking With God

It's what I feel like I am doing... just walking with Him. And I am in complete and total awe. I do not know how to explain this feeling.

I am overwhelmed.

His favor on my life is undeserved.

His answer to my prayers is not what I asked for, but more... different than what I thought it would be, but still an answer that only He can give.

I am learning to want nothing but Him. Nothing but a word from Him. Nothing but to worship. Nothing but to see His hand and know His ways and be in His presence. I do not want to move. I just want to stay here. I want my husband here with me and my sweet Caroline. I want my friends here... in His presence and I want us to worship with full abandon. I want everyone to know what it means to walk with Him like never before. To know His hope and His goodness. To know His promises. I know Him...

He gave me a scripture in the prayer room the other day. 1 Chronicles 29: 17-18 "I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things have I given willingly and with honest intent. And now I have seen with joy how willingly people who are here have given to you. O LORD, God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep this desire in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you. "

It's what I want. I want Him to see me and my family, friends, and church as people who give willingly with honest intent. I want Him to keep this desire in our hearts forever. Loyalty to Him and His name will be honored. I want Him to see integrity when He tests our hearts... and I want it to start with me. I pray that it will start with me.

Walking with God. It is unlike anything I have ever known. He is changing me. I don't know how to thank Him. I don't know how to show Him my gratitude. I just want to tell others that He is real, He is working and He is faithful.

"Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Your, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks and praise your glorious name. " 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

Hey girl, you are so right, he is working us this week. The things I am feeling from our Lord is nothing I could explain. Then I read everything you have wrote, Praise the Lord. Don't you just feel so content with everything he is saying? Thank you for what you do. Have a blessed weekend.
